The gravel road to campsite 1 is VERY precarious! We got the car stuck, but thankfully the owners were AMAZING and helped us get unstuck! The other campsites are actually pretty accessable though and they let us use one of those instead after arriving. We ordered the firewood and eggs and had a fantastic fire pit and open area. The owners are sooooo nice and the property has lots of cute animals. Recommended!

The farm is adorable. I stayed at campsite #3 and it was really private and peaceful, which I loved. On my second day I slipped and twisted my knee. I had to pack up and leave early. After contacting Cristina and Pete, they expressed concern for my injury and offered to refund my money for the last several days of my reservation. Which was an unexpected kindness! In the world of business it’s rare that those in charge go above and beyond to open their private property for others to use and also to treat their guests with care and humanity. I am grateful for the opportunity that they have provided for the community of Hipcampers. I wish I could have stayed longer. I might even return next year and give it another try!

so pleasant! we felt like we had a lot of privacy, and the whole farm and forest atmosphere was lovely. cristina was super responsive. our only regret was not getting more of the upgrades because it would’ve been great to get closer to all the farm animals. i also wouldn’t recommend arriving at night if you can avoid it, just because it can be hard to find your site at first. everything is of course much clearer during the day. overall it was a great stay and we would come again!

Site 3 was perfectly secluded and had a great view over the bluffs! Cristina and her partner were very helpful - quick to answer any questions we had, including finding the closest place to get stuff for s’mores!

This is a very peaceful and private spot in the woods in back of the horse pasture. It is simple and unmanicured - just a lightly mowed track in with a fire pit, with lots of tall grass all around. The outhouse was kind of a mess because some critter had gotten in and partied with the TP roll, leaving the wet paper strewn all about (happens! Definitely a container is warranted). Otherwise clean though. Those used to backcountry camping will do well here, those used to state park camping may not be as happy. We were just passing through on a long road trip so we didn’t get a chance to check out the property or area, but it looked lovely. Easy in and out and good communication with Cristina.

Our stay wasn't awful, but it wasn't good either. First of all, when we arrived we realized that the farm was in the middle of suburbia—and the neighbors were having an increasingly loud and drunken party that continued until midnight or one. The fire ring was surrounded by a painfully prickly vine. Worse, there was poison ivy surrounding and in front of the door of the outhouse. There was no toilet paper, and there was a small but active wasp nest in the corner. When we tried to start a fire with the firewood we bought from our hosts, we discovered that the wood was fresh and wet. It took an hour of steaming and smoldering for the wood to actually catch fire. On the plus side, the fire ring was well constructed, the site was very large, and there was an old slash pile in the trees that provided some nice dry firewood. On the whole, it seemed like the campsite and outhouse aren't maintained very well, if at all, and the wet firewood was a major faux pas.
